{Lets Scribble}

So here’s the newest Scribble This Challenge and boy are you gonna laugh at this one!

Its all about getting rid of the blur… which always helps when you can’t get it right in the first place with the camera. Especially when you wear glasses and try and compensate for what you think is blurry and really isn’t, which is why you wear glasses…

and that’s the funny part… I can’t find my glasses. Hopefully this is clearer than when I started because I just don’t know if it looks right or not. I’m really crossing my fingers while I upload this pic! But i did use the macro focus on my camera when i shot it.

Anyways, I made this card for my husband for our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been that long, but it has been a packed year for sure!

I asked him what his favorite colors are and he said blue, black and gray. which i thought was hilarious because he designed our bedroom and the walls are gray, the furniture is black and the bed spread and accents are blue… who would have thought!

Enjoy the card and thanks for looking!

Before After

I also used the tutorial from the Scribble This! Challenge #2 to get rid of the gloom.

Color Inspiration Challenge #54


So this is my first submission to the CIC, but I’ve folowed Kristinas challenges since # 45 but have always been too chicken to submit any of my cards for lack of confidence. I did try and sneek in a card for the big five-o, but never wanted anyone to see it. I’m always so self concious when it come to sharing my creations but I used one of Kristina’s layouts from her April:  A Year in Cards Class over at Two Peas in a Bucket, which gives me a little boost. Anyways, here’s the card…

New Life

New Life

This new life belongs to one of my mentor’s, she is having her baby shower on Sunday and I was truly inspired by the cute carseat and color combo in this challenge. TFL!

Lets scribble!


So I just found this amazing challenge from Lisa Spangler via Kristina Werner’s blog.  It follows a great tutorial and what great tips she’s given out! I tried it on a recent thank you card I made for my sister’s friend for babysitting my son. I love the results and I am definitly using this tip on my projects! Thank you Lisa!





What a difference! I just love the results so much! especially when I can’t figure out the white balance on my camera half the time! Take this tip to heart, It may win you a challenge!

Happy Birthday Dad

So here’s a card I made for my father-in-law’s birthday. I bought the stamp set from Martha Stewart’s glitter pack collection, and it came with some deer. Normally I wouldn’t use deer, but I came up with this clever saying that seemed usable.

Something Great.

So i guess i’ll try this out, blogging. Who knows, maybe i’ll come to like it, maybe not. My own digital journal for anyone to read. I’m hoping no one will, but if they do, or you do, or are, or whatever then i hope you find it interesting.  We’ll see how it goes. Hopefully i can figure out how to make it fancy, interesting, ya know those blogs that you have to check everyday or you might lose your mind kinda fancy. And if not, i’ll keep trying.

So here’s to the start of something great!
